November self-drive trip 2016

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 9-Nov-2016 and 25-Nov-2016 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


It was brilliant, we saw all the animals we wanted to see and more. It is so easy to drive around as long as you are careful on the gravel roads and the scenery is stunning, there seems to be a different view at every turn.

We found the people there so friendly and the level of accommodation was very good, comfortable beds always help! Although it was very hot - 35 deg on average, the dryness means it is not debilitating.

You can also see animals at the waterholes all day long, as well as in the conservancies , not just the morning and evening, making for a day long game viewing everywhere you went. Very pleased with all the help we received - it was nice to have a contact at the airport in Windhoek as well.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Not that we can think of at the moment.
